Mistle Thrush

Mistle Thrush (Turdus viscivorus)

The Mistle is the largest of the European Thrushes.
The male is the one you will regularly hear singing from the tops of tall trees and has a varied catalogue of calls.

This is Mum, Dad and the single offspring.

  4. Well done getting these shots Roy, as they are not the best of birds to get close to. Would they normally just have the one chick or two...

  8. Wonderful photos of the Mistle Thrushes, Roy and it's great to see them like this, too, given that they are another bird in decline.
